Mumbai, a secular city

Mumbai is a city where all major religions co-exist. Wherever you go in Mumbai, you will come across a temple, church, or mosque.

I picked some of my favourite:

     Mount Mary Church - I love this church. It's so peaceful inside.

     Haji Ali Durgah - this mosque is located in the Arabian Sea
     and can be reached only during low tide.

     Ghanteshwar Hanuman Temple - The temple of bells.
      (Ghant = bell). The belief is that anyone who prays here
      will have their wish come true. And when it comes true,
      they donate a bell to the temple.

Here are some pics (click on them to enlarge)
